Hey guys-

I bought a safecom wireless usb adaptor to connect my Mac Pro the the interweb but it only worked for about 10mins before disconnecting.

I couldn't solve this so decided to try it in a pc we have here and then connecting the mac to the pc via ethernet cable to try and get the internet with from the pc (running xp sp3).

The pc is connected to the internet fine and internet sharing is switched on. I have connected them with ethernet yet there is no internet on the mac.

Is this the right way to do this? Do I need to change some settings? Any other advice.

Excuse my ignorance, I've not really tried this before..

Whoa, nevermind. I restarted and it assigned the IP address this time.

Sorry to bother!
